Excellent museum, take you through the ages of Dinosaurs, then to the extincted animals, to current animals and insects. It also features the geology of Earth and some precious stones.

This is a great day out- lots to do for all different ages and interests. I'd say that most of their collections are old fossils but they also do have skeletons and stuffed animals.

This is a great museum for dinosaur lovers. They have plenty of exhibits of dinosaurs and of different wildlife. Some of the exhibits were in English so that was a great find. I would definitely recommend this museum for all ages

Comprehensive content. Plenty of fossils there (exhibits, not visitors) if that is your thing. Very impressive collection of dinosaur bones there, most of them belonging to full skeletons. T-Rex, triceratops and others are there in all their glory. The collection of stuffed birds interested me,...More

Design of the museum is nothing fancy. However, it attracts you to stay for hours by its very rich content. In each session, you can find many species in the display. Many people like the dinosaurs at ground floor. The cafe at 2nd Floor is...More

Hi, to 99% i think to remember that we used the credit card because like to save the cash for dining or whatever else. But you can call them too or have the hotel find out for you. To be 100% sure. 👩
